This podcast needs to be twice as long. Each episode is so different, discussing pop culture in all its forms. It’s so fun and so hard to remind yourself it’s a podcast and not a conversation that you can actually join in while listening... but that’s a huge part of the fun of it! It’s really thought provoking and well done.
Fun topic, great pacing, great banter and insight.
Love this Podcast
